1-pound flank, or skirt steak, or boneless skinless chicken breasts, or a ½ pound of each

¼ cup lime juice

3 cloves of garlic, minced

2 teaspoons ancho chili powder

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 ½ teaspoons cumin

Add to a large re-sealable bag; meat, lime juice, garlic, chili powder, salt, cumin, paprika, pepper, bell peppers and onion. Seal and allow to marinate for at least 3 hours, or overnight.

Remove meat from bag, and pat dry. Place in fry basket, select the meat setting (370F), and cook for 5 minutes. Flip, and cook for another 3-5 minutes, depending on the thickness of the meat. Let rest for at least 10 minutes.

Remove vegetables from bag and add to fry basket. Cook at 370F for 8-10 minutes, or until tender.

Slice meat against the grain and serve with tortillas, chopped cilantro, sliced avocado, shredded lettuce, pico de gallo, rice, beans and/or guacamole on the side.

Chocolate Budino
Chocolate Budino

Budino in Italian means pudding but this is more like a molten cake, moist and almost gooey in the middle when served warm from the oven. I like to serve the budino with a scoop of homemade Banana Chocolate-Chunk Ice Cream (in my cookbook, Cooking From the Hip), but it's also great with creme anglaise and fresh raspberries or strawberries.
